Abstract:
Preliminary findings have discovered that organic water pollution is creating the conditions for disease among game fish in North Carolina’s fishing lakes. The disease, which has been found to be present in all southeastern states, produces sores lesions on the fish skin, scales, and mouths. Pollution from sewage, industrial waste, and runoff produce the conditions which favor the condition to be spread among populations; however, at the time there is no particular solution except to limit pollution into the river and lake systems.

Abstract:
The plankton community of Sutton Reservoir, an estuarine-influenced cooling reservoir in New Hanover County, North Carolina, was sampled monthly throughout 1985. This study compared the pelagic and near-shore plankton communities, and investigated the influence of the reservoir’s chemical and physical characteristics on plankton density.

Abstract:
A new concept in water management may lead to improved water usage on millions of acres of cropland in North Carolina. A research project is testing to see if the Mitchell Swamp Canal of the Conetoe Creek Water District can be made to double as a water reservoir. The project will install a new inflatable dam called Fabridam to control the water level in the canal.

Abstract:
Nuisance blooms of blue-green algae have caused water quality problems in the Chowan and Neuse Rivers, and the potential for similar algal problems is uncertain in new impoundments such as the Jordan and the Falls of the Neuse reservoirs. Dr. Val Smith in the Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill has developed models predicting algae biomass and applied the models to North Carolina reservoirs.

In May, State Superior Court Judge Dexter Brooks reversed a decision by the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission that would allow the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority to continue efforts to build a reservoir on the Deep River in Guilford and Randolph counties. The commission voted to appeal the judge’s decision and to issue a certificate granting eminent domain, authorizing water transfer to allow construction of a regional water supply called Randleman Dam.

Abstract:
Answering the question of the problem of fishing in the Catawba and Yadkin River reservoirs, the author surmises that although the improvement of fishing in these areas is in the hands of the power companies, the introduction of walleyed pike could be beneficial.
